Another major UK festival has sold out all available tickets for 2023, in the case of Kendal Calling, which returns to Lowther Deer Park, England, July 27-30, that’s a capacity of some 40,000 people.

It also means that the Lake District’s most famous festival has sold out for a 17th consecutive year, consistently doing so since launching in 2006. And by doing so in three-and-a-half months, Kendal Calling set a new record.

There’s ten pairs of tickets left available through a charity raffle to raise funds for James’ Place, a charity that provides therapy for men in suicidal crisis, and Papyrus UK, a charity dedicated to preventing young suicide.
